School District Calendar
back to all new and returning PARADE students of Riverview Learning
Center and their families! Here at the RLC we hosted summer school,
our custodian has been scrubbing the classrooms and polishing things
up, and our secretary, Kris Rodger, is busy working to get the
2016-17 school year started.
the new RLC Principal and on behalf of all RLC Staff, I would like to
welcome you to the new school year. My name is John Bomar and I have
been an educator in schools for 17 years now. Most recently I served
in the role of Elementary Assistant Principal in the Sumner School
District. Prior to that I was a Dean of Students, School Counselor
and Teacher for many years in the Auburn School District. Besides my
educational career, I have served as a youth minister, mover,
construction worker, life guard, and boy's home counselor. I have a
wife of nearly 20 years and two children: Tai, 14; and Emi, 11. I
also love to play and coach sports, especially soccer.
will be some other changes this Fall at the RLC. We will welcome Mr.
Payette as the new counselor, Mrs. Hoffmann will join PARADE as the
new high school Language Arts/Social Studies teacher, and Mrs.
Culverwell will be teaching 7/8 Science and Math.
first week of school this year will begin September 6 with a PARADE
K-8 parent meeting from 9:00am-11:00am with time to grab a cup of
coffee and a treat and visit with our fabulous staff. The PARADE High
School program meeting for parents and students will follow at 11
a.m. This will be an opportunity to meet the teachers,
obtain at-home assignments and curriculum for the first week, and to
become acquainted with other parents and students.
Conferences are scheduled for the remainder of the week and you can
find your student's scheduled time at the bottom of this letter.
first day of classes for CHOICE start at 8:15 on September 6th.
CLIP students will start September 6th as well, and they should be in
Ms. Malm's classroom from 1:00-3:00pm. CLEAR students will meet
with Mr. Seymour on Thursday, September 8th at 1:30.
am very excited to get to know all the students and parents, and
learn more about the PARADE, CLIP/CLEAR, and CHOICE programs. We will
continue to build on the solid foundation and ideals of the RLC. I
hope you've had a great summer - mostly I hope you were able to get
some time as a family to rejuvenate and relax.
